ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe LGA 1155 ATX Motherboard Review

BIOS Features

The ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe uses a UEFI BIOS through the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface, or UEFI standard. The default view users will be greeted with when they enter the UEFI BIOS is ASUS's EZ mode screen. I really like the overall layout of the EZ and Advanced mode screens because the navigation options are still familar to me and didn't require much of a learning curve from using legacy BIOS configurations.

The two gaming charts are wrong? Dirt 3 the higher numbers are labeled Min FPS. In Crisis 2 the chart shows that the ASUS bord was slower, but you say it was faster. Which is it?

I’d like to see a report done on the missing in action Asus ThunderboltEX card for use with the proprietary “TB_Header” on these motherboards.

I mean we know Intel wouldn’t certify the ThunderboltEX card but that kind of leave the whole thing up in the air. Were the earlier motherboards released with optional Thunderbolt support advertising on the packaging or manual? If so that could puts Asus in a bad legal situation given their inability to deliver the product.

Does the Zalman CNPS12X Cooler block out the 1st RAM position on this board? It looks like you have the RAM sticks in the blue slots (positions 2 & 4 starting from the CPU and counting away from the CPU) vs. the black slots.

Yeah I'm also interested to know if the cooler blocks any of the memory slots.
